How often have you visited the dentist and bent the truth a little bit regarding your oral hygiene habits? You have probably lied about how often you brush and floss. While your dentist may not have said anything, chances are they can tell that you are not fully being honest. You see, when you do not practice proper oral hygiene, plaque accumulates on the teeth. Although you may only think that it indicates poor brushing and flossing habits, much can be learned through the accumulation on your teeth.

Periodontal disease is not a topic that often comes up in conversation. Nevertheless, it is something that should probably be talked about more often, partly because it is so pervasive. Did you know that some 80 percent of American adults have some degree of periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease? Unfortunately, many of these people don’t even know they have it. Dr. Campbell and his team at their Carrollton dentist office want you to know the warning signs, so you can seek treatment if necessary.

If you’ve been told that you have gum disease, then you’re in good company. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that nearly half of American adults have some degree of gum, or periodontal, disease. That you’re among millions, however, should come as little comfort when you consider the consequences this bacterial infection can have on not only your oral health but your overall health, as well. Fortunately, Carrollton family dentist Dr. Henry A. Campbell and his staff offer gum disease therapy, so you can enjoy optimal oral health and avoid some rather serious general maladies, too.
